Female only rooms in a mixed hostel:

Clink 78, Kings Cross
Fancy something different? How about a former prison with female only rooms. Dorms are in the old court rooms, private rooms are the old police cells. Things have moved on from the prison’s darker times and you’ll now get central heating, a bar, TV lounge, well equipped kitchens, plus wireless internet access. Oh, and they let you out too!

Final thoughts on picking the best female accommodation for you:

spacer Pick your area
All of the hostels above are centrally located, however London is a very large city and so consider whether you want to be to the northern side of the central London area – Goldsmiths or Clink 78 – or to the west – Park House, Barkston Rooms or RMI. The most centrally located hostel listed is Helen Graham House in Bloomsbury.

spacer Avoid the busy seasons
Like most cities in Europe, tourists flock to London in the summer and during other holiday periods such as Christmas and Easter. If you can arrange your stay, whether long or short, to avoid these busy times you will be rewarded with wider availability and better prices.
